  • Contestants must perform 1 Solo in the Dancer of the Year competition 
  • Dancer of the Year contestants can compete 2 solos, 1 for Dancer of the Year competition and 1 for National Finals Competition. You can also compete the same solo in Dancer of the Year competition as in National Finals Competition. Dancer of the Year Solos are not considered for Overall Awards but are strictly viewed for the consideration of Dancer of the year. Dancer of the Year solos do not need to have pre-qualified at a regional event.
  • Dancer of the Year Finalist must pay entrance fee of $375 which includes Dancer of the Year Solo, HV Attire, Costuming, and General Admission Gala Ticket for the Dancer. Ability to upgrade ticket to dinner will be available.
  • This award is based on dancers work in the workshop as well as their performance in the competition.
  • At the Closing Night Gala, we will announce the Top Dancer of the Year Contestants.  The Top 3 will then be announced where they will Dance Off during the Closing Night Gala Show.  Winners are announced in Show!
  • Dancer of the Year Contestants do not need to have a registered teacher with them to enter the Dancer of the Year Competition.  They do need to receive permission from the studio they qualified with and register under that Studio Name.  They can not register under “independent” if they received the scholarship under studio name.
  • Eligible Dancers can go for either Hollywood Vibe Dancer of the Year or Hollywood Dance Jamz Dancer of the Year but not both in the Orlando location.
